Superb Survey

A very good survey of the history of Ancient Greece. Organised chronologically it covers all the usual events in Greek history and does not stint in charting cultural achievements.

Whilst you obviously cannot expect great depth in a short book on a vast subject it manages to present a fair amount of detail whilst still remaining very readable/listenable.

amazing overview, average execution

I found the narration to be choppy and uninspired, but the content was of such high quality that after a while I got used to it and an now SO much better informed on Greek history. A great place to start for anyone wanting to prop up their ancient Greek knowledge
